Hey @Lolo0815, welcome to our Spotify Community! 

 

To start, can you let us know what device, operating system, and version of Spotify you're using? 

 

Also, does the SD card have at least 1GB of free space? Last but not least, can you head to Settings > Apps > Spotify > Permissions >, and give Spotify "Storage" permission?

 

Let us know how it goes.

I have the latest version of Spotify. My SD Card has 30 Gb of free space and I have a Huawei P9 with Android 7
